TASTING NOTES

"The impressive ripeness and intensity combined with elegance and finesse are what make this wonderful white. Honeysuckle, apricots, glazed grapefruit, spices and nutmeg. Medium to full body and fleshy fruit that’s lifted by the delicious acidity to the long finish." JamesSuckling.com

"One-third of the crop for this wine was lost to frost. A blend of 53% Sauvignon Blanc, 46% Sémillon and 1% Muscadelle, the 2017 Aile d'Argent has lovely white peaches, lemon curd and beeswax notes with hints of orange peel, grapefruit and a touch of sage. The palate is light to medium-bodied and bursting with exuberant stone fruit and citrus flavors, with a racy line and a long, peachy finish." Lisa Perrotti-Brown, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate #236

"The 2017 Aile d'Argent is quite, dense and powerful with more of a phenolic-like feel, which comes from an unusually high presence of Sauvignon Gris (15%) that is present in the blend. Lemon confit, white flowers and pink grape fruit. In most vintages, Aile d'Argent leans towards the more tropical end of the spectrum, but in 2017, the wine is much more citrus and stone fruit driven. Sadly, yields are down around a third because of frost damage." Antonio Galloni, Vinous.com

"Super-intense citrus – pink grapefruit. Smoky, scented richness, full and fragrant with apricot in the mouth. Firmly textured, structured, dense and still so fresh. Very, very long. Chalky depth on the creamy textured finish." Julia Harding MW, JancisRobinson.com
